The Grenadian passport is issued to citizens of Grenada for international travel. When issued, the Grenadian passport is normally valid for five years. New applicants are issued with a Caribbean Community Grenada Passport.[1] Philip Agee, a former CIA intelligence officer turned whistleblower was issued with a Grenadian passport in 1980 when his US passport was withdrawn.[2] Following the government policy reversal in 1984 on Grenada's controversial 'economic citizenship programme', the then Prime Minister Dr Keith Mitchell refused to reveal who had benefited from the scheme by receiving a Grenadian passport, citing 'the best interest of the country and its national security' as his reasons for not doing so.[3]

As of May 2018, Grenadian citizens had visa-free or visa on arrival access to 141 countries and territories, ranking the Grenadian passport 31st in terms of travel freedom according to the Henley visa restrictions index.[4]

Grenada signed a mutual visa waiver agreement with Schengen Area countries on 28 May 2015.[5]

Starting from July 2018, Grenada will introduce electronic passports and would cost $175.[6]
